    Driwall Rainscreen UV

    Fraser is a small town in Southeastern Colorado with a population of less than 2,000 people. The town boarders Winter Park, the location of a popular ski resort, and is a little over an hour drive from Denver. So wether you want to stay cozy and secluded in the mountains, hit the slopes, or explore the city, you have a variety of options to choose from. 

    One homeowner living in Fraser, had a concern for UV rays affecting his home because he was using an open joint veneer and wanted to ensure that it would be protected. One major issue that is faced when adding the siding to a project is that the Water-Resistive Barrier is not UV resistant. To resolve the issue, Keene Building Products Driwall™ Rainscreen UV was installed on the siding of the home.

    Driwall™ Rainscreen UV is a 0.40-inch-thick, high performance drainage and ventilation mat. It is designed to provide a 10 mm cavity with a long term UV resistance. Driwall™ Rainscreen UV has strength bars to increase compression resistance and with the addition of a UV stable fabric it makes Driwall™ Rainscreen UV ideal for open joint claddings, which is what the owner of this home chose as his siding. The UV stable fabric is black in color to contrast the emptiness and the entangled net is designed to deter insect and rodents from resting.

    Driwall™ Rainscreen UV has many other features and benefits such as, drainage of excess moisture and ventilation in one product, a core that absorbs and releases no moisture, simple installation with a mechanical staple hammer, and provides no source for the promotion of mold, mildew, or bacteria. Adding this product to any project is a no-brainer! 

    With the installation of Driwall™ Rainscreen UV, the homeowner can rest easy knowing that his home is now protected. And with a beautiful home like this one, who wouldn’t be happy with the outcome!
